It has been five whole years since I have updated this blog. We added a kid. A hive died. Life happened and got in the way of the beekeeping. Now I'm back with some news and no promises to update regularly. First, we have two new hives installed at the Groce Family Farm. Forthcoming post about getting them settled into their new home. Second, The Germantown Honeyhound will slowly being changing our focus over the next year. You see, I've also fallen in love with bats. They pollinate. They eat mosquitos and crop pests. They're cute. I look forward to the day you can visit us as "The Bats and The Bees," but for now we have each other. -H.H.
